Presented By


Lie detection expert, corporate trainer, keynote speaker

Former twenty-one year career police officer and undercover SVU detective.  You may have seen some of his cases on TruTV, Investigation Discovery, FOX, The Discovery Channel, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Tuscaloosa Times, and The Gadsden Times.

He is a regular guest on Crime Stories with Nancy Grace on FOX Nation and Sirius radio, host of Crime & Forensics radio show on KCAA, NBC News Affiliate in Los Angeles, author, and keynote speaker and monthly contributing writer for Psychology Today!

Learn the verbal and physical indicators of lying and the proper way to apply what you see.  

One of the indicators of lying is someone scratching their nose, but two different people can scratch their nose and one is lying and the other is telling the truth!  Learn how to tell the difference!  It's NOT just as easy as watching some videos on YouTube and learning a set of lying indicators!  In fact, most people can only pick out a lie about fifty-four percent of the time without proper training!

Steven presented How to Catch at CrimeCon 2018 at the Gaylord Opryland Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and was scheduled in the Washington Conference Room.  He had to be moved to the Presidential Ballroom due to the huge number of individuals registering for his session!   Even after being moved to the Presidential Ballroom, there was standing-room-only with 850 people seated!

Other speakers having sessions at CrimeCon were Nancy Grace (CNN, HLN, Grace & Abrams), Ashleigh Banfield (HLN), Erin Moriarty (CBS News, 48 Hours), John Kim (First 48), Keith Morrison (Dateline NBC), Josh Mankiewicz,

"I sat in on a session by Steven David Lampley on How to Catch a Liar.  Holy crudstunk – that was useful.  Not only is it something I can use as a true crime author when I interview people – it is something I can apply in my day-job as well."

Blaine Lee Pardoe

New York Times Best Selling Author (True Crime)


So many have the opinion that if someone will not look them in their eyes, they are lying.  Unfortunately, that is not always true!

So, what are the indicators of lying?  There are many, but just knowing the indicators and not knowing how to use them, will provide you misreadings and errant information when observing for the indicators of lying.

In the How to Catch a Liar International Corporate Training Seminar, the verbal and physical indicators are taught, but so are the techniques and processes you need to know on how to interpret these indicators.

Most people believe they are pretty good at picking out lies and liars, bu the simple truth is that research shows that the average person is only able to pick out a lie about 54 percent of the time!  Heck, you might as well just flip a coin! Research also shows that someone who has received proper training in detecting lies can do so as much as 90 percent of the time!  A huge difference!

Some of the topics Steven covers are psychological and biological factors, process analysis, as well as the many verbal and physical indicators.

Steven uses videos to show the indicators and as a participant, you are shown videos where you are asked to pick out the lies.

The two-hour session provides a wealth of information on picking out lies and, while there is a lot of information, the How to Catch a Liar program is fun.  Be prepared to laugh!

I had the distinct opportunity to attend Steven David Lampley’s presentation How to Catch a Liar at CrimeCon 2018 in Nashville. Because I was also doing presentations about The Keepers, it was difficult to attend many sessions, but I made sure not to miss this one.

Lampley used humor, video clips, and his wealth of experience to engage the audience in analysis of lie detection.  I specifically attended his session so that I, myself, could return to interviews featured in The Netflix docuseries The Keepers.  I took copious notes during Lampley’s presentation and used those to analyze our suspects, survivors, detectives, police officers and attorneys in the seven episodes. 


I was fascinated to find so many of the indicators Steven demonstrated as I reviewed the individuals. I intend to delve into Lampley’s books and online information as I pursue the truth about who killed my beloved teacher, Sister Cathy Cesnik, in 1969.

Thank you, Steven David Lampley! Thank you, CrimeCon!"
